    Spotlight search for SF giants. Current game scores, upcoming games. "The game I want to go to is coming up on Friday. ... Can even resize the spotlight panel and move it around. That's innovation. I can also express myself in my own words in spotlight searches. .. Slides from Brian about El Capitan"

  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:16:27 PM
    "This works great in other apps, as well. Let's try it out in Mail. ... See messages I've received from Phil but haven't responded to yet. I just say 'mail I've ignored from Phil'"

  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:16:49 PM

  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:18:33 PM
    Email from Eddy Cue says sorry he can't make dinner, he's busy. But Jeff Williams sends a photo from Eddy Cue at the Golden State Warriors game (he's a huge fan). Federighi could drag photo easily into message to send back to him
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:18:43 PM

    "I can drag links from Safari right here. ... I'm going to drag in some Yurts ... drag just up past the top of the screen and drop it in here."
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:19:56 PM
    "Can also use this to take items fullscreen. Took messages dropped on photos and created a split screen."
  • James Martin 6/8/2015 5:20:09 PM
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:20:19 PM
    "Feature on Spotlight that lets you compose your searches in your own words."

    very cool new windows management in El Capitan.
  • Scott Stein 6/8/2015 5:20:41 PM
    Seems like a lot of optimization for folks who may be on laptops with limited space.
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:20:49 PM
    Swiping to delete in mail, pin sites in Safari and the ability to easily mute tabs. Better window management than ever with beautiful new mission control interface, split bar

    "Seeing 1.4X acceleration in app launching, 2X improvement in snappiness of switching apps, twice as fast to get new mail messages, 4X as fast to get into preview."
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:21:26 PM

  • Scott Stein 6/8/2015 5:21:35 PM
    Improved app launching, snappiness...I wonder how this stuff will help performance on the 12-inch MacBook.
  • Shara Tibken 6/8/2015 5:21:41 PM
    Apple at its developer conference last year introduced Metal, a new gaming development platform. It was designed for Apple’s newest processors and lets developers take full advantage of the graphics processor, or GPU. The goal is to bring gaming console-quality graphics to games on Apple’s various mobile devices.
